Biostatistics for the Biological and Health Sciences is the result of collaboration between the author of the #1 statistics book in the country and an expert in the biological sciences field. The major objective of this book is to provide a thorough, yet engaging introduction to statistics for students and professors in the biological, life, and health sciences.

This text reflects the important features of a modern introductory statistics course and includes an abundance of real data and biological applications, and a variety of pedagogical components to help students succeed in their study of biological statistics.
